Letter from Colm to his mother
I wrote you a lot of letters, but I don’t get one back from you, maybe you don’t get mines. I´m now 14 years old and I decided to write you that letter after a long time, because I know that we won´t met each other in our lives. I don’t care about why you left me or why you don’t hold me back, I decided to catch up with this chapter in my life.
Maybe you won´t get this letter or won´t read, but I want you to know that I’m not mad or angry at you. I have a family now, a home. I go to school, I have friends, I have finally a normal live, a live I dreamed about.
Maybe you know from my last letter, that Bill died. I´m living now with Blue, Bills daughter she doesn’t give me like you away. We’re living in a beautiful house with Joe, Blues Husband and Rusty. I want you to know that I’m finally happy with my new family they gave me the love I needed, what you can´t gave me.
They are carrying about me like I were there child. I hope at all that you have a good live, maybe I have siblings, maybe not, maybe I will never know.
Your son Colm

It´s like the day my mum left me in the orphanage. I have nobody now, I’m alone again. I don´t know how my life is moving on now. Where I would go what would happen. One half of me hopes that Blue would take me up, but my other half thinks that she won´t do that, because she doesn’t even know me and I would remind her to her dad.
Maybe I just should talk to her and ask she what she would do with me, but not now. It´s too early. It´s so fresh with Bill, we all are sad and can´t think with a clear head. I just hope she w.....[read full text]
